Born into a world of design, Alessandro Munge from Studio Munge quickly transcended his teenage sketches to become one of North America’s most sought-after designers. Through his inquisitive nature and fundamental drive to provoke profound emotion, Alessandro has reshaped the preconceived notions of interior design for over 20 years. “As a first-generation immigrant, I came from very humble beginnings and grew up fast. I never had much to lose, and that made me fearless. Creators need a voice. They have to be curious and brave; it takes courage to question the norm and bring forth uniqueness.” – he stated.
In this exquisite project, an exclusive residential condominium building in the heart of Toronto’s historic St. Lawrence Market neighborhood, this two-story, 4,500 square-foot penthouse illustrates how a luxury condo can still have all the comforts of a traditional family home.
With 360-degree views, a sprawling terrace and airy interiors, this inspired setting is an ideal home for the clients and their family.
“There’s nothing more fulfilling than witnessing people enjoy our spaces and learning about the lives we touch through design. Whether improving people’s day-to-day in thoughtful residential developments or creating memorable entertaining hospitality experiences, we touch lives through design and support businesses and communities worldwide. I’m so grateful for all of the international design awards we’ve won and the recognition from our peers, but the customer reviews are often what touches me the most. I love seeing beautiful wedding pictures in our venues, comments on restaurants pages. I also love knowing that our clients’ businesses are thriving because it matters. See I have no interest in award-winning projects that fail because they don’t make business sense. I am interested in producing work that is successful. We design with the purpose to help lift communities around the world, creating jobs and opportunities for many.” – Alessandro Munge
The interiors feature a soft, neutral color palette accented by sculptural elements and natural material finishes, including a leather-finished, two-way Costa Azure marble fireplace in the main-level dining room and sculptural spiral staircase separating the living and dining areas.
